    Does anyone know what it is? A wasp was crawling round it yesterday but it could only just fit in, so unless it's a one wasp house it doesn't belong to him.
    I think it's empty but there's no way im going to pull it off the roof :eek:

    It's the start of a wasp's nest. There might even be a few larve inside it.

    Had to remove one about that size years ago from my shed as well.

    I'd be tempted to put a clear plasic tub over it and then knock it off the roof with the edge of the tub, if there's anything comes out it won't get you but you may be stuck holding the tub for a while!

    Plug up the hole and then remove it. Unless you want a wasp's nest in your shed.

    As said, it belongs to the queen wasp. She lays her babies in there, and when they hatch they'll turn it into an uber-huge nest.

    You'll want to be getting rid of it asap ;)

    I had one of those in my shed not to long ago, and i knocked it off to see what was inside, but there was nothing there, it just kind of disintergrated!! But i would get rid asap, if I were you.

    Super soaker with petrol in it, then light it all up and watch it burn.

    There is no other way and i'm afraid you're going to have to sacrifice your shed.

    I agree with ElRazur for the request of a video link, but not to watch the wasps at work.

    I'd enjoy sitting back enjoy watching the OP in the shed get assaulted by the swarm and assimilated into their wasp collective, live on my screen. :)

    I've just gotten rid of the start of one from my room :eek: , good old dyson to the rescue :D . There was a wasp there aswell and it didn't look to happy to have been sucked into the hoover then dunped into the outside bin :D . If I hadn't had done that then I would have woken up at some point with loads of the blighters all around me.
